COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jefferson Stout, Lazy Magnolia’s original Sweet Potato Cream Stout, is Lazy Magnolia’s version of the ideal Southern-Style Stout.

The sweet potatoes provide the background to an impressive taste with added notes of roasted chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear dark ruby-brown with a large fizzy brown head. Fair head retention. Aroma of mild roast, lactose, spice. The taste is roast, potatoes, earth, lactose, tart finish. Thin-medium bodied, decent balance.

MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Vanilla and milk chocolate benefit from roasted edges and earthy potato depths for a nourishing dessert brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the brown-edged black.
-A fruity touch gives the flavour profile a little more complexity.
-The high sweetness and soft prickling of carbonation don’t help drinkability.
-When in the mood for dessert, this is a quality sweet Stout.
-The finish lacks bitterness or spiciness to balance out the sweetness.

Bottle. Lactic chocolate malt, ash and sweet potato aroma. Black with moderate long lasting tan head. Sweet cocoa malt and roasted sweet potato flavor. Lightly bitter ash finish. Light body. Not bad - would have liked more body.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2010
On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep dark with brown edges and thin mocha head. The aroma is kind of roasty to burnt with a molasses sweetness mixed in as well as a chocolaty earthiness. The taste is smooth and sweet with highly roasted malts mixing with sweet notes of molasses along with an earthy note I can’t put my finger on. It dries out a bit into the finish and after taste with dark roasted malts.

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Nashville Flying Saucer. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has roasted malts and dark grains up front with a hint of underlying sweetness. Flavor does have a sweet potato note that works well with the dark grains and roasted malts.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2010 Draft pint from Cooter Brown’s. Pours a very dark brown with a tiny tan head. The aroma isn’t particularly strong, but has notes of chocolate, roasted malt, cream, and coffee. The flavor is much stronger than the aroma leads you to believe, and is smoky, roast coffee, malts, and burnt toast. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel with medium-to-heavy body. Roasty, smoky finish and burnt toast aftertaste. Re-rate: May 21, 2010. I think this must have been too warm at Cooter Brown’s when I had it in September, because the sweet potato notes really came through this time. Bartender warned me and a few buddies that it would be an 8-minute pour and she was right. Beautiful dark opaque brown with a cascading brown head. The roasty and smoky notes I remembered mellowed out and were replaced with sweet potato, cream, toasted brown sugar, and just lightly roasted malts. So smooth and sweet, with some dark fruits coming through later and the creaminess growing. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Very nice beer.

Pour out of 12 bottle, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, hints of slight lactose into some slight acidic malt, hints of a earthy note in there as well. Taste is a mix of sweet sugary notes, slight lactose into some earth, hints of roast, coffee, slight chocolate, finishing slightly acidic, dry.

Pours dark brown with a nice, light brown head. Smells of roasted malt, some molasses, spicy. Tastes roasty and chocolatey with a nice, full bodied finish.
